Earth Matters co-producer and Gila Resources Information Project and Gila Conservation Coalition Executive Director Allyson Siwik discusses the latest on the Gila River diversion with former NM Interstate Stream Commission Director and Gila diversion critic, Norm Gaume.

Now in the 13th year of planning, the deadline for a record of decision under the Arizona Water Settlements Act is fast approaching and Gila River diversion proponents have yet to fully define their proposed action.

Recorded on March 5, 2018, Norm provides the latest on the Gila River diversion project including NM CAP Entity efforts, the most recent yield modeling conclusions, and the results of the 2018 legislative session.
